Sustainable Finance: Risks & Policy

Dr Paul Fisher, Fellow, Cambridge University Institute for Sustainability Leadership; Terry Heymann, Chief Financial Officer, World Gold Council.

Dr Paul Fisher (Fellow, Cambridge University Institute for Sustainability Leadership) and Terry Heymann (CFO, World Gold Council) discussed what sustainability means and the importance of ESG. Paul considered how we should think about the risks and opportunities sustainability presents to the financial sector, before looking at how regulators globally are responding to those risks.

Terry presented WGC’s findings on climate change, tracking gold’s carbon footprint through the supply chain, and considered how reducing this footprint can benefit the mining and investment industries.
